Website of the Week - One Word


For those of us who need a little kick in the right direction early in the morning, oneword is a simple writing exercise to get those brain juices flowin'. The concept is extremely straightforward: you press go, and the page loads with a new word each day at the top of the page. You've got sixty seconds to write anything you want, whether it be a short paragraph of prose or even a haiku.

Spoiler alert! Here's mine (about pirates, naturally) on today's word:
man with the marble
face, sinking ship: learned he sold
his gods to the sea

Check out a neat interview with the creator Brian Kessler. Thanks Aaron!

Awesome site, Brittany. I really liked the minimalism of the prompts, it throws the door wide open to write. Getting over that first hurdle of generating something is a issue for a lot of writers, myself included.

I found an interview with Brian Kessler, the creator here.
